Improved co-ordination, planning and management of the coast are central to C-SCOPE.

Due to population density and the wealth of resources, coastal zones are under continuous and increasing pressure; many activities such as fishing, dredging, shipping, tourism and marine energy are competing within this vital space.

C-SCOPE will create a ‘seamless coastal and marine planning framework’ to suit the demands of professional and non-professional users, following a ‘bottom-up’ approach. The results will allow a more holistic approach to planning, reducing development conflicts and impacts between coast and sea at a local level.
